I saw this announcement this morning. It’s 100 days till the U.S. Midterm Elections. The big chat is whether or not the Republicans will gain control of the Senate. There is no doubt they keep the house. They need 6 seats to take the Senate.
It is going to be close, 3 should be shoe ins and 3 are a flip of the coin. Personally I hope they don’t get control. The best thing for the longterm outcome for Conservatives is 2 more years of the same. If the Republicans gain control nothing will be able to be passed that will change a single Obama or Democrat Policy.
They will lack a veto proof majority, and Obama will veto everything that is passed. No matter who controls the Senate nothing will change except that the Press will blame every problem the Nation is going through on the Republicans.
So here is to the Democrats, May you succeed in keeping your majority. God bless Gridlock.

I was listening this morning to the various themes on the BBC Sunday religion programme, and suddenly I realised that I was truly in the strange world of BBC-biased-righteousness.
The bloke being interviewed, if you can call a one-sided diatribe an interview, was a member of the rapidly-decreasing Christian population of Iraq, and of Mosul, now of course ruled by the thugs of the Islamic State. He was complaining that he and his fellow Christians were forced out from their homes and jobs because they were Christians, and because they would not accept f***king Mohammed and become Muslim. Fair enough, he may have had a point, but only maybe; after all, what business is it of mine what God you pray to?
But then he whined off on a three minute diatribe about how WESTERN governments should allow them into their borders, and give them cash, and food and everything else, because it was the fault of the WEST that the Islamic State cowboys had come so far and so fast, and how unfair it all was.
Sorry, mate, but you are first and foremost Arabs as well as being Christian, and ISIS is surrounded by extremely large tracts of space which are ARABIC, and surely it is your own brothers who should welcome you into their homes, and give you lots of cash, and food, because the last three times the WEST has tried to alter things in Muslim Arabic countries, namely Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, it didn’t turn out so well, so why should the West give you, Christian Arabs; sanctuary from Muslim Arabs?

Imagine you are a very successful ‘Pop Singer’ and you have sourced your songs, your material from not only your own mind, but from friends and from other writers and singers.
You are content that you have done everything by the ‘book’ when making your records, and your fans have responded by making you very wealthy.
Then; Disaster. Your records are ‘soiled‘ by association with a paedophile pervert named Rolf Harris.
And then you get this:-
One fan tweeted: “I feel they (the songs) have now been soiled, and I would like the chance to listen to these tracks without the input of Rolf Harris. “Maybe Kate will do this in future, she has been an avid supporter of childrens’ charities here in the UK (NSPCC springs to mind) so she may want to do this.”
Another added: “Rolf Harris made a significant contribution to The Painter’s Link and every time that track officially down loaded, Kate (via her companies) profits from it. That has to a very unwelcome association for Kate. Although she clearly wasn’t aware of Rolf’s criminal activity at the time the recording was made, she must be well aware of it now.”
Knowing very little about modern music, but a great deal about ‘pressure politics’, I ask the question: Should she change? Hell; No!

This is the inevitable consequence of dismantling the institution of marriage.
The highest human rights court in Europe has told European LGBTs that they have no human right to same-sex marriage, in a case that also shows how complicated sexual and marital norms have become in this new transsexual world.
Now, follow the logic…
The case arose after a man in Finland, who was married with a child, decided he wanted to live as a woman. After a sex-change operation, he attempted to change his governmental “male identity number” to a female one. He was turned down because, according to law, he needed his wife’s consent to change their man-woman marriage to a “registered partnership”, which she had withheld.
The problem in short is that this married man and woman could no longer be considered married in Finland if he changed his sex to female because Finland does not allow same-sex marriage. The couple would be required to accept a “registered partnership”, something they objected to.
The couple sued and told the court that “a divorce would be against their religious convictions” and that a “registered partnership did not provide the same security as marriage” and that “their child would be placed in a different situation from children born within wedlock.”

Here is how cultural Marxism advances at the cost of liberty.
A 70-year-old councillor who called herself ‘the nigger in the woodpile’ has been sent on an equality and diversity course.
Convent-educated Elizabeth Peters used the offensive term while speaking to a member of the public after a Stroud District Council meeting. The grandmother, who runs a bed and breakfast in Brimscombe, Gloucestershire, and organises the village fete, apologised but said the phrase was commonly used when she was young.
She said: ‘I’m 70 and grew up with this kind of thing. It was just something which slipped out. It was not directed at anyone except myself. ‘There were no foreigners around. I have already apologised to the two people who were upset. ‘I have also gone through with what the council wanted me to do – go on an equality and diversity course. ‘It will cost me £150 plus transport to London or Birmingham. It’s a really costly mistake.’
1. She was referring to HERSELF – no one else.
2. She was using a common expression for her generation.
3. She was cowed into accepting this suppression of expression by the language Nazis.

These savages deserve death, not the benefit of procedural problems.
The Kansas Supreme Court on Friday overturned the death sentences of two brothers convicted of killing four friends who were robbed and forced to engage in sex acts before being shot to death and left in a snow-covered Wichita field.
The court also struck down three of the four capital murder convictions each against Jonathan and Reginald Carr, citing procedural problems at the brothers’ joint trial for its decisions. It upheld one capital murder conviction for each of them. Prosecutors said the brothers broke into a Wichita home in December 2000 and forced the five people there to have sex with each other and later to withdraw money from ATMs. Two women were raped repeatedly before all five were taken to a soccer field and shot while they were kneeling. Four of them — 29-year-old Aaron Sander, 27-year-old Brad Heyka, 26-year-old Jason Befort and 25-year-old Heather Muller — died.
The sheer EVIL of these thugs is beyond words. They are a blot on the earth. Put them under it.

Two great videos here…First Joan Rivers telling it like it is.
Then, Marco Rubio explains it for the slow of thinking..
Well worth a view. Contrast Rubio’s forthrightness to the vacillations of Obama and Kerry.

I have always been fascinated by the sea. Its power, its majesty, its simple dominance of all this planet’s puny dwellers. I sailed the oceans for seven-eight years when a young man, when the British Merchant Navy was still a major presence upon the trade routes of the world; where you could confidently expect to locate the British ‘Red Duster’ hanging from the rear flagstaff of merchant vessels in virtually every major port the world over. But, time passes, and so does trade; but the vastness of the seas remains, and it is only those who have lived and worked on the sealanes of this world know the true power of the element on which we sailed.
I would give two examples of man’s ingenuity when it comes to taming the power and problems which face anyone who goes to sea today, and, espercially in the second instance, a true measure of how insignificant Man himself really is when it comes to attempting even to tame the mighty oceans.
Remember the lunacy which resulted in the near-sinking of the Costa Concordia, brought on solely by the stupidity and arrogance of one man, her Captain? The dead have been buried, and the captain brought before a court. That vessel has now been righted, and floats northwards at a majestic 2 n.m.p.h towards her final destination, the dock where she was built; and of course where she will be slowly and safely torn apart and demolished. But the ingenuity, the engineering and the persistence of the salvage crews needs a salute, and this is mine:-
But away from disaster, and towards new beginnings, I profess that one of the projects which has always been high on my list of things to watch is the huge project to upgrade both Northern and Southern approaches to the Panama Canal. In Engineering terms, it is up there alongside such gargantuan projects as the Three Gorges Dam in China. The first photo shown is one taken as one of the new rolling gates approaches the ramp which leads towards the newly-excavated lock, and a view of the workmen gives some idea of how big the parts of this project really are.
The second is a panoramic view of the new locks as they in time will be, complete with the storage areas which will accept the water displaced or available, when the vessels enter or exit the Canal.

We noted last year that the NyPo reported that the (GWB) White House had redacted, and therefore covered up, 28 full pages from Congress’ investigative report on 9/11 dealing with “specific sources of foreign support”. It said:
After the 9/11 attacks, the public was told al Qaeda acted alone, with no state sponsors.
But the White House never let it see an entire section of Congress’ investigative report on 9/11 dealing with “specific sources of foreign support” for the 19 hijackers, 15 of whom were Saudi nationals.
It was kept secret and remains so today [...]
A pair of lawmakers who recently read the redacted portion say they are “absolutely shocked” at the level of foreign state involvement in the attacks.
Reps. Walter Jones (R-NC) and Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) can’t reveal the nation identified by it without violating federal law.
A third congressman, Rep. Thomas Massie, R-KY has now read those secret 28 pages and he was so “shocked” that he called a press conference recently to discuss it -
Whatever we think we know about 9/11, we don’t know what the White House is keeping from becoming known, and therefore information is incomplete. The GWB and Obama regimes think that the people either have no right to know (which is self-evident), or that they cannot handle the truth, which is also quite possible but not a legitimate reason. What can be inferred is that the official position of Congress is that 9/11 was not the work of non-state actors.

Impeachment that’s the push. Not by the conservatives, but it is being pushed by the White House and the Democrat Party.
It seems the Left has come up with their strategy to rally their base in a hope to save the midterm elections. In several stories this weekend even from the White House Press Secretary Mr. I’m not Earnest. Could you imagine having a job as a press secretary and your last name being Earnest …. Anyway, The push is on for Impeachment. Now the Dems say that as a regular line in their funding drives, “If the Republicans get control of the Senate they’ll impeach Obama” give us money.
I ask Why? Why would anyone on the right other than just the pure suicidal nature of Congressional Republicans ever push for that? Obama is the gift that keeps on giving. All we have to do is survive the next 2 years. He has done more damage to the left than anything the inept politicians on the right could ever do. Immigration is just the latest and won’t be the last. So don’t believe what you read no one wants this fool to do anything, but run his term.
White House: Republicans May Push to Impeach Obama If They Get the Chance
The notion of impeaching President Barack Obama got substantial attention Friday from two White House officials, who both said senior Republicans wanted to see it happen. But they couldn’t name any senior Republicans when pressed.
Further, White House press secretary Josh Earnest expressed doubt about whether House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) was sincere when he said impeachment is not on the table.
“I do believe that the speaker said on a number of occasions that there would not be steps taken by Republicans to shut down the government over health care,” Earnest said of Boehner, adding, “Maybe you need to ask him a little bit more about whether impeachment is on the table or not.”
Some conservatives have called for impeaching Obama regarding executive overreach on issues such as Obamacare, immigration and guns without congressional authorization. The Democratic National Committee and Organizing for America have consistently used impeachment in fundraising emails to warn donors about what could happen if Republicans win more seats in the House and gain control of the Senate.
The topic first made news Friday after Dan Pfeiffer, a counselor to the president, told a Christian Science Monitor breakfast: “I would not discount that possibility. I think Speaker Boehner, by going down the path of this lawsuit, has opened the door to Republicans possibly considering impeachment at some in the future.”
